Our plane was delayed several hours and we couldn't reach the airport in time for the last van. But after a phone call to recaro during a transfer in the airport they agreed to wait for us. We where picked up as agreed and transported to the destination the same day. Very grateful for the good service as we otherwise would have been forced to stay overnight near the airport.

I got picked up at the hotel as booked, but this was all thanks to my hotel receptionist as he called the company to reconfirm and they did not seem to be aware of the booking, so basically if my receptionist did not call, I would still be waiting in the lobby.. also the van was stuffed including grocerys and stuff
